This is an simple but elegant starter that can be a starter or dipper. Serve with crusty bread and dip away. It is lovely when warm rather than hot and ideal for sharing with a loved one.

  • Cut off and discard the top rind of the Brie.
  • Combine the shallots, herbs, wine, and pepper in a small bowl and press firmly over the top of the cheese.
  • Roll out the pastry dough on a lightly floured surface to make a 10-inch (25 cm) square.
  • Place the pastry over the cheese and fold it under the cheese to enclose it completely.
  • Turn the cheese over and press the pastry seams together.
  • Turn right side up and brush with the beaten egg.
  • Bake in a preheated 400F (200C) oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.


So easy and so gooooooooooeeey. Everybody who loves cheese will love this.
